9:01 am
a partnership between the neighbors actually makes more sense with forty per cent of the world's population and at a time when these two countries' economies are growing while many of the traditional western powers their economies are decreasing many people say that a partnership between india and china could actually be detrimental to a country like the united states the united states actually exports eight point four billion dollars of arms to india every year and india is actually the number one importer in the entire world many people say the united states is interested in india to counterbalance china's growing influence in this region and to have a strategic ally here when the united states plans to withdraw its troops from afghanistan in twenty fourteen so while other countries might have an interest in what kind of relationship india and china has. all signs are pointing to stronger

9:04 am
a big resonance base at home and abroad earlier the us said that it had also by and around sixty russian officials from traveling to the u.s. speaking often magnitsky his death then president dmitry medvedev he said that the people who are accused of economic crimes and tax crimes in particular they should not be put into pretrial detention and of course mostly says no as death is a big tragedy but they've called on other nations not to stage a political show regarding the matter and they've promised a tough response to any foreign sanctions that could be put in place over the case a lot more are still lined up for you in the program including a look at those coping with catastrophe. international sanctions cut syria from the outside world depriving fountains of basic necessities while those who work in the country's agriculture sector wish only for an end to the war.

and the long arm of the copyright industry reaches all the way to cambodia with one of the fugitive founders of the pirate bay the file sharing site now facing extradition to sweden. they're known as blue on green attacks when u.s. trained afghan troops turn their weapons on nato soldiers the incidents have become so frequent or that the coalition has decided to halt the training of local forces until the proper screening of recruits is carried out robert not iman from just foreign policy says that nato commanders in afghanistan have brought the problem upon themselves. what's really striking about this is that nato officials are admitting that they've known for years that there are only varying procedures were not being followed. and that this is contributed to these killings spectacular
9:06 am
mission. and the big question of why didn't make the change before finally the problem grew to such a spectacular stage that they could no longer ignore or believe the attach of groom because first of all they've been as they now admit any people to these forces without vetting and secondly because there are just a greater proximity and third because there is greater stress both stress on the afghan soldiers and police stress on the u.s. forces which helps them behave in ways that broke the afghan soldiers and police i think the deeper question is you know what can we learn from this about u.s. policy and the credibility of the generals were always told to defer to the generals the generals ever control until there are some spectacular episode that shows that they don't have
9:07 am
a situation to be drawn what should we conclude from that about western in particular u.s. policy i think that is really where the focus of the west should be and you know what are we going to do to change that policy which is so clearly spectacularly failed. still ahead for you later this hour daily and. strange. as thousand strong marchers filled the streets with riot police often turning peaceful protests glee. was the children's cartoon classics that may now be suitable for adults a new age rating system for t.v. programs in russia animated in anger. the new international peace envoy to syria has described his job as quote near impossible lockdown brahimi went on to say that not enough is being done to stop the violence both on the side of the government and the rebels and as the death

toll rises so do the streams of refugees fleeing syria to join the hundreds of thousands who have already left the situation has become so dire that jordan and the u.n. have appealed for seven hundred million dollars to help provide care support sanctions to make ordinary life difficult in syria with canada alone around picking up its measures against a. college this year. boyko reports it's now up to syrian farmers to act as a last line of defense against a humanitarian catastrophe. reaping the harvest of economic isolation and a good one farmers across syria are is busy as ever collecting to food to labor decades of economic sanctions haven't taught syria to rely on no one but itself at least when it comes to agricultural production and there are no sour grapes about it now while the political pressure on syria is mounting this country is still able
9:09 am
to feed its people. almost everything that adds up on syrian tables is growing here in the country south far from the clashes and this year spared the usual drought these fields are probably the. governments bast had against all sort of foreign pressure aiming to undermine its support base. syria has experienced sanctions since the 1980's and it is told the country to be self-sufficient now i grew culture is well structured we have all the seeds fertilizers and water they haven't been damaged by the sanctions or by the ongoing clashes i can say that agriculture still remains among the sectors least affected by the clashes well this place still looks like a sanctuary of peace the actual war is heard here all too well seventy three year old jimmy noble hassan says he understands the young who want their country to change what he contacts app is their means and what. people who are misled and hold
9:10 am
weapons fight the government and destabilize the country are wrong i hope they'll calm down we all need peace to return to syria. polarized on so many levels the syrian conflict has also drawn the line between villagers and city dwellers as violence continues in urban areas people in the countryside are working hard to feed the two warring parties attacking villagers out in rural areas isn't going to really help them in accomplishing their task which is to try to get assad out of out of power and so i think that's certainly not going to get the syrian people on their side so i think that the attacks are being concentrated in urban areas where they have the greatest chance to affect syria economically and potentially to strike at the military targets in the lap or clashes are still the order of the day but twenty kilometers west mohammad is trying to preserve one of his family's to be colonies the other and here homes is thought to have been destroyed they couldn't
9:11 am
access it for more than six months. and i don't want to comment on politics it's too dangerous now all i can say is i think using weapons was the biggest mistake. syrian beekeepers are absolutely convinced that a beast as superior to all foreign species is billeted to withstand hardship and the blight of their pastures and as clashes in the north continue taking their toll on the industry many here hold that there is the only answer of syrian peace will also be transferred today kippers it's not artsy syria. but the main focus on syria the mainstream media is not so all seeing eye seems to keep missing what's happening in bahrain another arab state that's been engulfed by protests for over a year now dozens of anti-government protesters have been clashing with riot police west of the country's capital as comes days after thousands of people swapped the

9:18 am
something which russian legislators try to put a stop to. people usually associate themselves with fictional characters they see on t.v. and if adults can understand and analyze that's for children the characters both positive and negative are models which they absorb and take with them. their new t.v. radio online media to market programs that are showing way for each category ranging from six to eighteen programs depicting things like sex drugs. and. there's just one problem. that there is a paragraph in this which is supposed to explain which content this applies to and we should doesn't like for example information of cultural historic value but stipulation is written so loosely nobody understands exactly what's cultural value
9:19 am
and what sort of information is of such value. since the law doesn't give a list of things which are of special value potentially even the classics. could have banned for children like one theme a series of. the wolf sometimes. it's absurd the soviet cartoons were used to me. they're into treating children in a positive way and smoking is merely a quibble it's up to media outlets to discern for themselves which programs can be shown where and what age waiting to give them but an official commission will be tasked with any breaches of the guidelines the penalties include a fine of up to six thousand dollars and even the possibility of the suspension of the stations broadcasting license for three months many people will agree an initiative of this kind was necessary however there are doubts the current law is

9:22 am
a manufacturing slump in the euro zone so we're seeing the analysts and investors are not really concerned about that what they are concerned about is what mario draghi the head of the e.c.b. will say on thursday he did promise and pledged to preserve the u.s. it will see what he has say about that on thursday now moving on to currencies us that look what's happening we've seen that the euro has been flat against the u.s. dollar and it's considered new in that trend right now when it comes to the ruble it's still losing that gets of both major currencies now if we want to take a look at the russian the markets the spike some the climbs in the oil price russian vessels are not fazed by that we're seeing positive now. the r.t.s. and m i six out of my socks already one person in the black we do have russian investors focusing on the asian pacific corp summit of course which will kick off in russia for a small on that a little bit later but let's take a look at those oil prices side we're seeing some of the clines there today and we see that light sweet it's still just a notch but the brunt of the quite well there as we can see again is about ten
9:23 am
cents this hour and what we do know about oil prices interest in fact here in fact that oil production the for the month of august reached about soviet record here in russia and private companies extracting a combined a million barrels a day that's for the love of all this also we know that analysts are saying that production is rising because we have companies trying to take. the high oil prices because we are we are having reports that we might see the draw of course from the u.s. also they're trying to do what they can do for that if that happens of course unless we want to apec russia is a unique bridge like position between europe and asia may help global companies prosper in the region and ahead of the summit we spoke to one of the biggest industrial holdings here in the country that sumo group believes and explain to us why there's so much potential in the region it's like a lesson that they're doing with the. locals sharing apec russia demonstrated that
9:24 am
it is capable of using its soft power our initiatives in regional integration transportation food security and innovation grateful to have been supported by all other business council members russia will only be able to fully capitalize on its role of the geographical bridge between europe and asia if it improves its own infrastructure and regulations at the moment less than one percent of trade volumes between those two parts of the world transported by russian territory it's literally nothing the projects we're offering to develop will enable russia to. the volume of transit through its territory by up to five percent. how will your company contribute to the development of business in the region when. we started to large scale asia oriented projects in the far east we have build in coal and grain terminals we think that after last year's tsunami in japan demand for russian coal
9:25 am
will rise as it will be just as l.n.g. substituting for nuclear power stations going out of service as for the grain terminal well russia has enough grain to increase its exports from the current twenty five million tons to forty however in russia's far east existing infrastructure only allowed to export seventy thousand tons last year and we will be able to export over one hundred times more. what are the main problems that russia has to solve in the order to be able to capitalize on its unique location in the region. which is to make russia more attractive for international cargo flows we need to solve the problem of insufficient railway access to ports that keep the cargo on the tracks for days before it gets on board a ship customs regulations are another issue it takes almost three weeks for a container to get customs clearance almost the same amount of time as it takes to transport it from blood it will stop to moscow once we improve services and customs
